Tottenham Hotspur seek to repair reputation by taking part in a three-way tournament

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are in talks to take part in a mini-tournament that will replace the traditional pre-season tours this summer.

The competition that will also include Chelsea and Tottenham will donate a large part of their earnings to charity. The decision to do so has been boosted, thanks to the negative publicity the three teams received as a part of the European Super League fiasco.

All three clubs appear keen on arranging the three-way tournament this summer. If all goes well, it will take place sometime after the Euro 2020 final on July 14 and before the Premier League season begins on August 14.

Tottenham Hotspur are in talks over a new mini tournament in pre-season

While talks are still at an early stage, there is growing confidence that the tournament will get the go-ahead. The idea represents a change from the time-honed tradition of going abroad for hugely lucrative pre-season tours.

However, the Covid-19 pandemic has led to several travel restrictions, deeming such tours are unlikely to take place this year. The clubs have hence been forced to arrange tournaments/practise games domestically.

Stadiums could be allowed to operate at greater capacities by pre-season, which would bring in greater revenue. According to the report, the three clubs hope that the fight for local pride will get the supporters’ juices flowing.

The battle for London?

The tournament could prove to be lucrative in terms of broadcasting money. With the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs going head to head, there should be enough ammo for TV companies to make use of. The prime motivation however is to raise money for charity.

There is still much for the clubs to do before supporters can let them off the hook for committing to the European Super League. This is however a good start and hopefully, the trend will continue.
